Grok 1.1a2!

The Grok development team is very happy to release Grok 1.1a2!

This is a preview of the 1.1 release that will be based on the Zope ToolKit (ZTK). The ZTK will bring a significant number of newer versions of the libraries that Grok is built on.

The ZTK will not only make available newer features and bugfixes in toolkit libraries, but also a less complex dependency structure of these libraries encouraging more reuse.

About Grok

Grok is a modern Python-based web framework. Grok is powerful in the hands of an expert developer, as it excels in reuse and extensibility thanks to its use of a component development model. At the same time Grok aims to let less experienced developers be productive immediately, so that the walk up the learning curve is more smooth for them.

Changes

Grok 1.1a2 has the following changes compared to Grok 1.1a1:

  • Updated z3c.recipe.compattest's version and used it for a bin/compattest that tests grok and all its dependencies.
  • Add grok.getApplication() that, similar to grok.getSite() retrieves the "nearest" enclosing grok.Application object.
  • Use zope.container instead of zope.app.container.
  • Use zope.catalog instead of zope.app.catalog.
  • Use zope.intid instead of zope.app.intid.
  • Use zope.keyreference instead of zope.app.keyreference.
